What year is your R1? I noticed my 04-06 R1 is lacking in low end grunt compared to a gixxer 1000 or 1000RR. And also find wheelies much easier on my ZX6RBtw I watched this vid before going out and practicing...
what a load of bs it didnt help me!
My r1 can not do what that 600 can do!
On my 04 @ 70 in second gear you can clutch up easy or power bounce both work just fineOn my 04 I found that a light bounce in 2nd at 6.5k and hard throttle finds me a perfect balance point around 11.5k where I can ride it out. However, realize that the 04 makes 70whp (wot of course) between 7-11k... becareful cause it will creep up on you quick. I haven't tried clutching up yet cause I can bounce up third at around 8k pretty damn easy also. On the R6 I had to clutch up 2nd even with sprockets, but I really don't find a need in the 04.
For you 04 boys, if you are clutching up what gear and Rs are you turning? Also, do you find it a lot easier to ride out a stand up if you clutched up at lower Rs?
Question one . Do you KNOW what a powerband is ?I must have the most under powered r1 in the world... I spend most of the day trying to do power wheelies...
I just could not get the front end to come up more than an inch and it would drop straight away... out of frustration I tried sitting as far back as i could, keeping my arms and back dead straight with my head up (trying to get my weight as far back as I could) then pulling off and pinning it. with no luck!
I have watched a couple of vids but as im still a beginner i would like to master the power ups first
Question one . Do you KNOW what a powerband is ?
Question 2 Can you identify where your bike hits it in RPM ?
Assuming you DONT its the rev range where your bike starts to launch the beginning of the power band is the safe range to start a wheelie...
Look your overthinking it i guarantee it , take off from a stop and cruise about 2k from power band . Look straight . Centered on the bike quickly but smoothly accelerate up to the point bike starts to launch . Close that god dam throte shut oike your racing to some gina. Immediately whack it back open . Dont go to far the front should come up rather quickly.
I know what your doing. Your nervous about it cause you ve seen all the idiots out there who ride way beyond their limits the first day they get their bike and clip their shit. Dont anticipate anything. Quit fighting it . Come too far up just crack the throttle shut .
In hindsight what am i saying " QUIT BEIN A LITTLE BITch"
Did I miss the part out?The response ive been waiting for!
1. Yes I do know what a powerband is (my prev bike was a banshee)
2. around 8,500k rpms? I think
some very good advise... let me practice not being a little bitch for a while and hopefully I can get it up!
Did I miss the part out?
I'm so........... close to rocking idle seat standers and staggered wheelies. I think I need to either go with bigger gearing or turn my idle up a little bit more. I'm currently running +5 in the rear and 3k idle. I think I should try 4k.
What a tool^^^
:sissy::lolUmmm.... was that directed towards me?
Internet tough guy...............?All i wanted was some pointers / help not some internet tough guy trying to show off...
